Male CEOs with daughters

28 Feb,+Like+Father
When male CEOs have daughters, relative pay for women at their firms goes up, narrowing the persistent gender wage gap.
When a CEO’s first child was a daughter, the wage gap in his firm decreased by a whopping 55 percent. When the daughter came later in the birth order, the wage gap decreased by 4.2 percent. Having additional daughters had less effect — more daughters didn’t prompt CEOs to continue raising salaries for women at their companies.
